Thermal Pins For Application Variety

Industrial metal mold / blank milling, Metalworking, Lathe, milling and drilling industry, CNC technology, plastic moldingIn order to get the most out of your industrial applications, you must consider all areas of maintenance, care, and other parameters. For instance, you would not expect a cell phone to function properly in the sweltering summer heat all day, and as such, the battery drains much faster because the device is overheating. The same can be said for your machines, as a number of conditions can cause them to function sub-optimally. In today’s blog, the team at Noren Thermal Solutions in Taylor, TX uses plastic mold cooling as an example to detail how custom thermal solutions can be tailored to address specific needs.

High-Temperature Heat Pipes

To detail the needs of industries that utilize plastic mold cooling, you first need a basic understanding of the overall intended purpose and function. Indeed, plastic molding is used to create a variety of containers and products used not only by other industries but for packaging and distribution as well.

Just like any other assembly line, the intention is to produce as many plastic bottles or containers in a short amount of time as possible without compromising the overall quality. In other words, plastic molding benefits tremendously from the ability to transfer heat rapidly over large volumes.

While there are a few different methods to accomplish this task, one that our team stands firmly behind is the thermal pin. Indeed, this device consists of a high-temperature heat pipe that is used for rapid heating and subsequent cooling over large volumes. What’s more? Its versatility allows it to be used with various forms of molding equipment, including injection, blow, extrusion, and rotational. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.

Plastic Injection Cooling

Detailing the process for plastic injection mold cooling, thermal pins can be used in small cores to enable a reduction in temperature in areas that were previously inaccessible to water and other types of cooling. In solid cores, plastic injection mold cooling can be used to draw in and absorb heat from the base of the plastic mold into remote water channels, providing an eco-friendly solution to the process. Contact a representative from our team today to learn more about this process.

Extrusion and Rotational Molding

When it comes to extrusion or rotational models, thermal pins provide a solution for rapid heating and cooling in an even manner. This means that you do not have to worry about developing sink marks, pulling, or spotting that can compromise the quality of the plastic products you are producing.
